Cinekid & COVID-19
The exceptional health and safety measures put in place to limit the spread of COVID-19 are having an overpowering impact on the film industry worldwide. Depending on different decisions by the governments, festivals and get-to-gathers were cancelled, cinemas were closed, shoots were postponed and many production, distribution and sales companies have been obliged to move to teleworking. We are slowly moving to more open societies again, albeit in limited ways. This has a profound impact on the organization and structure of our festival in October.
